Conversations in Forest History webinar series
Conversations in Forest History webinar series
Learning

When one pictures a wilderness advocate, usually a forester doesn't come to mind. That's because foresters are historically associated with developing forests for timber and other resources. And yet four of the eight founders of the Wilderness Society were trained foresters who valued both wilderness protection and sustained-yield forestry. How do we make sense of this paradox? To find out, please join historians Paul Sutter and James Lewis for a lively discussion about this.

You’ll emerge with a plan for a trail study that you can implement right away, whether you have money or not, using targeted volunteer effort, free or low-cost tools, and an approach focused on what you most want or need to learn. You will also learn how to analyze your results, present findings, and use your study to catalyze action. Three 1-hour sessions, June 7, 14, 21, 2022
